US beef that enters Japan has to meet specific regulations but yes, know your product...

Japanese beef also has antibiotics and hormones. How else do you keep disease off an animal with so much fat and kept caged up. Plus the grain is very likely GMO....

Posted in: Is rugby in Japan on a roll after WorldCup, or will the 'rugby bubble' deflate? See in context

Sadly for the rugby team including Rich Michael this will prove to be flash in the pan - me many foreigners and just not kakko ii enough. Baseball, soccer, sumo, golf, and swimming (maybe the martial arts - judo) are the mainstays and everything else is just in the moment... including ping pong, tennis, wrestling, and basketball.... Rugby after the World Cup budget runs dry will wither....

Posted in: U.S.-Japan trade deal hits snag as Tokyo seeks assurances on car tariffs See in context

YuriOtani's attitude is proof that a trade deal with Japan is meaningless given consumer prejudice toward anything not made in Japan. Just tax the cars and give it to the farmers and move on to a deal with China.

That simpleton is rewriting an destructive trade deal with a country that has had the most predatory trade practices short of the British Empire. That no one here is aware of that or how it has resulted in deflation for Japan is beyond me.

@Zichi - I see so they own this in perpetuity no matter how much it actually emasculates Japan?
